For the last few years, one of the highlights of the Academy Awards night has been what comes after the Academy Awards. Namely, Jimmy Kimmel‘s post-Oscar spoof of Hollywood filmmaking at its grandest. This year was no exception.
After knocking it out of the park two years in a row with Movie: The Movie and its inevitable sequel, he switched gears this year to bring us highfalutin Oscar bait trailers starring the likes of Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Ben Kingsley… based on the likes of YouTube classics “David After Dentist,” “Keyboard Cat,” and “Charlie Bit My Finger.” Check ’em all out after the jump.

The Hunger Games had a pretty massive cast to start with, but since the first film ended with (um, spoiler alert) a whole bunch of characters dead, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is reloading with tons of other new characters.

The summer movie season’s winding down, but there should be plenty of big, exciting action this fall as well. Among the upcoming offerings are The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which picks up with Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) on their victory tour around Panem following the events of the first film. Francis Lawrence directs this time around.
A new international trailer has just hit for the film, and you can check it out after the jump.

Dwayne Johnson may be “franchise Viagra,” having helped prop up the Journey to the Center of the Earth, Fast and Furious, and G.I. Joe movie series over the past couple of years, but even he can’t keep Dito Montiel‘s Empire State from going straight to DVD.
The film’s lack of a theatrical run is even more surprising when we look at the rest of the cast list: The Hunger Games‘ Liam Hemsworth leads, while Michael Angarano and Emma Roberts play supporting roles. As starry ensembles go, it’s not Les Misérables, but it’s a combination that sounds on paper like it should sell tickets.
Then again, even the brightest, most talented stars can only do so much to elevate an otherwise mediocre film. And while the first trailer isn’t quite terrible, it is damningly generic. Hit the jump to check it out.

During the summer movies tend towards sun, superheroes and sequels. There are romantic comedies with huge stars, and animated 3D films generating lines that run around the block. That doesn’t leave a lot of room for the little guy. But maybe something else can sneak in. Paranoia, directed by Robert Luketic, is an espionage thriller that doesn’t boast any big special effects, just an impressive cast with an intriguing plot.
Liam Hemsworth stars as a man hired by one tycoon (Gary Oldman) to spy on his competitor, played by Harrison Ford. Amber Heard, Josh Holloway, and Richard Dreyfuss are caught up in the scheme, too. The film opens August 16. Check out the first trailer below. Read More »

The Expendables 2 delivers on every single insane promise you can imagine. It is loud, stupid, funny, and filled with lots of over the top action. It lets some of the world’s most famous action actors chew the same pieces of scenery. The first film did some of that, but was mostly just boring, getting caught up in a bland story. In this sequel, directed by Simon West (Con Air), there’s definitely some of that bland story, and the dialogue is much worse than that of the first film. But when that is juxtaposed with gory, boisterous action set pieces that include exploding heads, flying knives, plane crashes, boat crashes and guns of all shapes and sizes, it’s forgivable and fun.
Adding to the success is a cast that’s even better this time around, as Chuck Norris and Jean Claude Van Damme join the already awesome line-up of Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Jet Li and Randy Couture. Oh, and Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s roles are expanded this time too. West hasn’t reinvented the wheel with The Expendables 2, he’s just shined it up real nice, put spikes and skulls on it and rolled it through the mud. So far, it’s the best action film of the year.
